Field of Application – Adhesives and Sealing Compounds Keeping together what belongs together The effectiveness of adhesives is Among other processes, our material out how it behaves on a vertical surface dependent on several factors. They testing machine enables us to simulate at high speed and at a precisely defined must wet the substrate perfectly two different tearing processes. In thickness. As uncomplicated as this test and be easy to process. Their flow the shear tests two material samples, is, the evaluation is more sophisticated. characteristics, especially on vertical which are adhered to each other, are It takes a wealth of experience and surfaces, are therefore critical. Our torn apart in the vertical plane. The peel metrological expertise to interpret the additives help adhesive manufacturers tests, however, test how difficult or easy results correctly. to create these differing parameters it is to peel a material away from the with precision and, if required, tailored other at a right angle. In the end, we can provide our to the customer´s requirements. We customers with an exact picture of use our special measuring and testing At the same time, we check to see how their product, which has been equipment to prove with precision the which effects other additives, which we optimized with our additive, will behave desired adhesive properties. have recommended to our customers, in different phases of the adhesive have on the adhesion. This way, we process. The rheometer results offer an To what extent does our adhesion can demonstrate for example, that excellent foundation for the subsequent promoter improve the efficiency of the silicone defoamer makes it much easier tests under real conditions. adhesive? That´s what the tensile test is to produce adhesives and, at the same for. The more force required to destroy time, has no negative influence on the the sample, the stronger the adhesive adhesion. The rheometer is used to test power and thus the more efficient our the flow characteristics. It takes just a additives. few millimeters of an adhesive to find The speedmixer creates the adhesive samples The rheometer tests the flow characteristics The material testing machine tests adhered material samples 39
